The hotel is very well placed on Leisure Island, a small and quiet part of Knysna. Excellent, friendly staff, very comfortable beds and large rooms. Nothing to dislike
Amanzi was absolutely beautiful and the staff was fantastic. They were so attentive and helped us make plans for restaurants and any activities we wanted to do. I can'r say enough about this bed and breakfast. There was nothing I didn't like about Amanzi.
Wonderful position, friendly and knowledgeable service, superb bedroom and public rooms - we loved it! Nothing
To put my stay in context, I normally stay in 5 star hotels and have travelled extensively. The stay at this hotel exceeded our expectations, the location is great, the place beautiful. Helen and her mother were perfect hosts and I can’t rate this place high enough. It is thoroughly recommended.
This was the star of our SA trip. Room oustanding. Vie supendous. Breakfast excellent. Service friendly and attentive. Felt very at home and welcome. Too be highly recommended!! How could you fault it?
The room was nice and big, the people were very friendly and helpfull. Service was excellent Nothing
This is a quality property which exceeded our expectations, for comfort, location and delightful staff who could not do enough for us. Nothing at all.
Very Welcoming and friendly staff. Helpful with advice on possible activities. Would definitely recommend it It's a little way out of town, which might be a problem for anyone without a car.
We stayed in several lovely accommodations in South Africa during our 2.5 week stay but Amanzi was our favourite Everything was perfect and Helen, Sue and Margaret made us feel so welcome. Beautiful accommodation, location and lovely breakfasts.
Great location in leisure Island, very friendly staff and amazing service.
luxury rooms, spotlessly clean good breakfasts, easy parking felt restricted in using pool and facilities when they were entertaining their own friends
the hosts could not have been more helpful, welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. The accomodation was perfect for our family of four and breakfast was a very pleasant occasion. Highly recommended.
This is the most wonderful place - everything is fantastic about it - the owners cannot do enough for you and the accommodation is beautifully furnished - we loved it
Great Location,the owners Joyce & Graham were very helpful and charming people We loved everything about the Lodge
Graham and Joyce were excellent hosts and made us feel extremely welcome offering advice on local amenities,activities and recommended some excellent restaurants in the area. The accommodation was of a very high standard, had excellent facilities and fantastic views of the lagoon.All in all we had a fantastic few days in Knysna. No fridge in the room was the only down side.
Beautiful guest house all finished to the highest standard. Joyce and Graham couldn't have done more for us and made our stay very enjoyable
The stay at Candlewood Lodge will be unforgetable! We were welcomed by our hosts and felt at home immediately. Everything was excellent and the warm atmosphere was outstanding - I would recommend a stay at Candlewood Lodge to all I know!
Beautiful location and close to Kynsna Centre. Good recommendations for local restaurants.
It was superb in every respect. The owners were gracious and helped with dinner choices and directions. A great place.
welcoming, efficient and well worth the money. Lovely home feeling. brilliant service
We were greeted personally by the owners and made extremely welcome. We were given information about our location and provided with a very good street map. We were also given good information on places to eat and interesting excursions. The owners were always available, in our all too short stay (2 nights). We have no complaints whatsoever and would reccommend to anyone. No complaints. Re question below I did not actually read the guest reviews. I tend to follow my own instincts.
very helpful on eating out and booking activites no

My fiance and I had a fantastic stay at the Hide-Away Guest House during our recent visit to Knysna. The hosts, Cecil and Colleen, were very kind and always happy to help with good advice on what to do or where to eat as they are very knowledgeable of the area. Our room was very nice and comfortable, and the view of the Knysna lagoon was spectacular and very enjoyable over afternoon tea or breakfast, which was served al fresco on the veranda. The breakfast was delicious, with abundant selection. In short, we would go back as soon as we can and can highly recommend the Hide-Away Guest House to anyone. If I had to point out something we didn't like, it would be the wifi--it was spotty and we kept being kicked off the network. Not a big deal if you are on vacation, though, and it worked just fine for email. Also, keep in mind that Hide-Away is not right in the center of town (this is a plus), so getting to the Waterfront is about a 10-15 minute walk, which you may or may not feel comfortable doing late at night. We walked most of the time during the day and evening and felt perfectly safe, but we did take a cab after dinner when it was getting late.
Great staff. Good breakfast. Would like to have full DSTV service in room. Nice view.
Fabulous views of Knysna, especially from second floor room. Bedroom was huge with the biggest and most comfortable double bed I've ever slept in!
Excellent services and fantastic vue, 4+++ stars!!
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were advised on all the various activities we could do in the area and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We stayed in one of the more expensive rooms which had a fabulous view over the bay. The room was very comfortable, clean, spacious and the breakfast was delicious. We could not fault it and we would most definitely recommend it to anyone! No, absolutely not.
Cleanliness of room and bathroom. Good breakfast. Good hospitality. The room was not an en-suite.
Size of the room and the views on the lagoon from its terrace. Also the large bathroom.The staaf was very helpfull and kind. We intended to do the climb towards the hotel after having had eveningdinner at the Knysna waterfront but that turned out to be too difficult.
Very friendly staff, exellent value for money.
